Just start the motor up and let it come up to temp (120 degrees F or so) at least once a month. It only takes a few minutes to warm up. i never fog my motor, pour oil down it ect...i just run it at least once a month. As far as your issue, you probably have a little extra oil in it due to pouring it down into the cylinder head. From just normal use it'l burn out if it already hasn't done it. In the summer your jetting is fat so when you do start it she will smoke a bit more. The only thing you may want to check would be to make sure your oil cable is adjust properly. The oil arm shouldn't move until you crack the throttle open a good 1/8th to 3/16th of an inch. A lot of oil injection pumps are set to move the lever as soon as you touch the throttle and it can introduce oil into the motor a little too quickly and cause it to bog/accelerate a little slower off the line. Just my $.02.

The 93-95 t-cats are very heavy and have low lug tracks on them....everything you don't want in a sled in deeper snow. Not much you can do about it other than slip another suspension under it for a little more travel and I think you can only go up to about a 1.25" track on it without hitting the front heat exchanger.
